    Ah, didn't remember that card. I had that one very close, but for Canelo.

    I think most of Canelo's controversial decisions, are pretty close and aren't terrible decisions.

    But I must say I did feel Golovkin did win their 1st fight, quite clearly by a few rounds. But I didn't see anything wrong with Canelo edging their 2nd fight.

    I think discussing fantasy fights and making P4P comparisons of fighters from different eras and weight classes is a total waste of time.

    Jack Johnson is severely overrated and would’ve lost to Jeffries at any point in Jim’s prime

    Sanders landed bombs later in the fight before gassing out. I know because I was there. I have never witnessed another puncher in person who could throw like Sanders (and I attended Joshua--Ruiz).

    Heavyweight sucks an egg. Nice post though.

    I had Canelo winning by a round the first fight but had about four rounds that could have been toss ups depending on how you score.

    Satterfield may have definitely had millions of good fights that we could enjoy, but sadly only a few of them are available.

    Damn, I really want to watch the third Johnson fight

    Maybe I'll rewatch this and see if my score has changed. The thing with Canelo fights is that the other fighter almost always is busier and may look more effective than he really is, but in reality is often pitty patting and hitting gloves. I think the commentary for the Saunders and Plant fight was pretty atrocious, with a lot being made out of ineffective punching.

    I thought that also was the case for Bivol early on and didn't give him many of those rounds, but he started to land with more intention and take over in the second half of the fight.

    Well it's been ages since I watched it, and I have no intention of rewatching it. But I thought it was a very close fight and 117-111 was way off, Lara actually out landed Canelo aswell if I remember rightly. But I'm not gonna go Into a debate about it as it's your opinion.

    He never beat a fighter as heavy and Holyfield who was that good and had that much experience.

    He's the least likely of that group, but it's still possible. Successful superheavyweight. Large, skilled, etc. I think as years go by, the weight people believe is enough for any heavyweight to compete will rise beyond prime Ali's.
